With the NBA‘s 74th campaign tipping off this week, basketball season is officially in full swing across the nation, and Kevin Durant‘s Nike Zoom KD 12 is ready for the battles ahead with a four-pack of “Team” colorways. Geared towards squads of all ages/skill levels, from middle school to high school and college, the quartet of new makeups were designed to present a unified look.
Three of the four KD 12s that have released are fairly similar in their palettes, while one offers bold differences. “White/Black,” “Black/Dark Grey” and “Wolf Grey/White” styles provide a versatile run of light-to-dark hues, all of which are accented by a white/black Flyknit tongue and a glowing green outsole. The outlier is a “Game Royal” iteration, which opts for a bold blue shade accompanied by white hits and the same tongue as its three counterparts.
Although the looks may be different, the tech in each pair is the same. The strobel-less midsole places a full-foot Zoom Air cushioning system directly under the insole for maximum responsiveness and court feel, while a durable rubber outsole ensures all-game grip. The upper’s quad-axial Flywire provides support where it’s needed most without adding weight, and the aforementioned Flyknit tongue assists with fit and feel.
